Significant breakthroughs in coating technologies with applications spanning slime busting coatings, passivation coatings, corrosion protection coatings, bioactive coatings, phosphate coatings are seen to be driving the advanced coatings and surface technologies business. The slime busting coatings control slime and prevent them from adhering to the surface of marine vessels and thus improve their performance.
Passivation coatings that are hydrophobic and increase the corrosion resistance of manganese substrates have also gained immense interest. While modified silica coating enabled with electrodeposition process is a growing area of interest to coat and protect carbon steel from corrosion. The immense focus on corrosion protection by researchers has also resulted in development of a new phosphating coating that protects graphite. The diversity of coating application is also seen in medical implants, wherein bioactive coatings are developed for improved osseointegration between titanium implants and bones.
